A big loss for the euroCRIS Board

Sun, 11/10/2020 - 17:59 -- euroCRIS Secret...

Following her appointment as the University of Sheffield Interim Library Director and University Librarian, Anna Clements stepped down from the euroCRIS Board as of August 30th. The sheer volume and complexity of her tasks at her institution in these difficult times made it impossible for her to commit to keep providing the valuable input to the euroCRIS team that she has delivered for many years. euroCRIS’s loss is Uni Sheffield’s win.

Persistent identifiers for research instruments and facilities?

Thu, 25/06/2020 - 06:10 -- euroCRIS Secret...
The virtual 2020 VIVO annual conference last week offered an opportunity to catch up with the PIDINST project via a presentation of the initiative by Markus Stocker from the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB, Technical Information Library) in Hannover. The slides and recording for the presentation are not yet available online but will soon be – an earlier version (2017) was deposited in Zenodo.

Insights from the euroCRIS Board: CERIF and the KDSF

Mon, 11/05/2020 - 20:44 -- euroCRIS Secret...
Interesting discussions often take place within the euroCRIS Board mailing list on relevant topics related to the CERIF format and to Current Research Information Systems (CRIS). As this is a closed list for euroCRIS Board members only, these conversations remain internal in nine out of every ten cases. Having a blog however offers us an opportunity to occasionally share some of the highlights of a specific exchange of opinions among experts in these matters.

Astronomy, research information management and return of investment in research

Wed, 26/02/2020 - 12:42 -- euroCRIS Secret...
There were several reasons why this was so. First and foremost, because of the opportunity to raise an increasingly relevant topic (RIM) that is already offering new professional horizons to a growing number of institutional research libraries around the world (see ample evidence for this in the recent 'Practices and Patterns in Research Information Management' report jointly produced by OCLC and euroCRIS).  

An update on the DRIS: the DRIS map and the online form for DRIS data delivery

Fri, 31/01/2020 - 16:57 -- euroCRIS Secret...
The main aim of this DRIS enhancement is to be able to provide a summary of CRIS system implementation in a given region in a single snapshot.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Exploring a subject-oriented approach to Open Science

Wed, 13/11/2019 - 13:09 -- euroCRIS Secret...
This BE OPEN talk will be placed in a session on Wed Nov 20th devoted to ‘subject based research information management systems’. It may be a little early yet to speak about subject-based CRISs, as there’s none of them running in a fully operational mode yet, but it’s definitely a good opportunity to discuss the challenges they face and the opportunities they offer.

EARMA Conference 2019 Bologna: report

Thu, 04/04/2019 - 11:57 -- Ed Simons

With an overwhelming number of attendees (800+ !) the trend of the last few years of an ever increasing popularity of the EARMA conferences among the international research management and administration professionals was clearly confirmed.
Apart from the usual high focus on funding issues, and more specifically EU-funding and administration, this year’s conference saw a substantial number of contributions dedicated to the subject of impact of research, with special attention to the Social Sciences and Humanities.
